It was reported that Colt Cabana recently received a WWE tryout, however according to PWInsider, Cabana’s tryout was anything but recent.
Cabana’s tryout with the company is dated back in February of this year and another one back in 2012. After the CM Punk DVD came out, there were several within WWE who wanted to take a look at Cabana as an announcer because they liked how he came off in the DVD. Previously, Cabana had done announcing work in FCW while under a developmental deal.
The story that came out noted that CM Punk had gotten him a tryout recently, however it was WWE who approached Colt Cabana about a tryout as a WWE announcer. The Wrestling Observer originally reported that CM Punk set the tryout up.
